The objective of this chapter is to provide the practitioner with a road map covering the various steps and questions to assess whether a given vertical agreement benefits from Regulation 330/2010.

A step-by-step assessment is called for to avoid the risk of inaccurate conclusions. The chapter takes the reader by the hand and guides him systematically through the various steps that need to be covered so as to arrive at reliable conclusions regarding the applicability of the block exemption regime.
